Heist 1: Fleeca Job GTA 5 guide, walkthrough
Last update: Wednesday, May 11, 2016
The first heist is a tutorial mission - Lester provides you with the information that you need. You only need one other player to get prepared. The missions are very fast and it is difficult to fail here, provided both of you have appropriate experience. This is why, it is a the source for very quick, but low income.
At the beginning of your preparations, you only need to get into a car and wait in front of the bank, in the Western part of the map, next to the highway. One of the player does the driving and the other waits. On your way back, however, the other player will have to complete a simple minigame to break security. This consists in making a line between points A and B, three times. After you return to your place, the first mission is completed.
The second preparatory stage is getting a getaway car. Get to the top level of the multistory garage (both of you). Kill all of the opponents there - it is recommended that you strike both at the same time, by sneaking. Also, it is possible for one of the players to distract the opponents, whereas the other one sneaks to steal the car.
It is a heavily armored car so, you do not need to worry. You find this out again, while you will be returning to Lester's factory, while being chased by a multitude of opponents.
Hint: you do not need to drive your car to the top level, you can just as well climb the stairs. This way, you get to the top, at the opposite side to the spot, where the car is parked. However, if you have a long-range weapon, you can eliminate many of the gangsters without taking damage yourself.
Fleeca bank heist
Default income: 115 000$
- Complete the heist within 5:20 minutes ,
- All crewmembers survive,
- The car takes less than 6% damage.
For this heist, two people are required. First, go together to get the armored getaway car from Lester. One player is driving and the other one will have to make a breach in bank security (the minigame that you have already played in the preparatory mission). As soon as you get there, enter the bank.
One of the players deals with the four cameras and scares people (aim at them, shoot next to them and destroy objects). The other one goes to the back of the bank, where you need to drill a hole in the unlocked vault. The first player can see the scare-meter in the bottom-right corner of the screen - keep it filled for the whole time. As soon as you hear the other player open the vault, run to the car and prepare to escape.
The task of the other player is not too easy for a new player - you need to feel the pressure and the number of the drill's revolutions, to complete this task quickly and not overheat the drill. After you drill though each piece of metal, take a moment's rest for the drill to cool down. Attach it o the piece of metal delicately and attach some pressure, at the steady revolution rate, initially. Increase the revolution rate only after you penetrate the metal layer.
Then, have the driver wait in the car and escape along the highway. Along your path, you get to three road blocks. Several meters ahead, there is a chopper waiting, which lifts your car. If you do not manage to drive under the magnet, before the bridge ends, the mission ends.
